We would like to introduce you all to our local Kiwanis Club! The Kiwanis Club of Herrin was formed in 2017 and has been a proud member of the Herrin Chamber of Commerce since its inception! The main motto of Kiwanis is “Serving the children of the world”. The Kiwanis Club of Herrin’s focus is serving the children of Herrin and its surrounding communities.
The Kiwanis Club of Herrin is new and really building momentum! Their club strives to participate in events that bring families together, including their annual “Herrin Community Movie Night” at the Herrin City Park that has taken place over the last three years! There is no admission, and the phenomenal sponsors help provide free, fresh popped popcorn. They also partnered with Herrin House of Hope to provide Kiwanis Kids Birthday Boxes. They also host a fundraiser and cook out for the community during the 4th of July celebration at the Herrin Park. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel’s Builders Club is a focus and helps the members build self-awareness as they learn their passion to serve.
As they come into their 5th year, they have contributed to various events/ requests: Williamson County Relay for Life/ Bike Raffle
HHS Flying Tiger Archery Club / HHS Lady Tigers Basketball / HHS Tiger Football
Local scholarships for Herrin students
Herrin’s Upwards Basketball program

The Kiwanis Club of Herrin finds their uniqueness in their sole focus of helping children. As their club grows, they can find more ways to make a positive impact on the children of their community. They want to help children, but also influence them to get involved and volunteer. They find value in being a Herrin Chamber member because so many of their members are because of their connection to the chamber. They find the chamber to be a vital lifeline to their club.
